Agnes Obel is a Danish singer, songwriter, and musician based in Berlin. She dropped out of school at 17 to pursue her love of music and is currently working on depression treatment pieces for a clinic in Denmark. She said in an interview: “There’s also the element that we don’t really understand our minds, but we also don’t understand music and why music has such a strong effect on us.” Broken Sleep is from her fourth album, Myopia, and has a beautiful and ethereal sound. We recommend listening to this album alone for best reflection!
